Ver 4 PAL GAP + Magic 3.1 works ok then dies after 5 min
Has adjusting the laser realy improved the booting with the Magic3.1 ?
in my findings, sony cd-rs suck ass.
My instinct is to say that you've done a double whammy. The Magic 3.1 is acting as a heat sink for the Signal Processing Unit and both might thus be overheating. In fact they will be overheating.
Do forgive these harsh words but it is kinda silly to mount in this way if only because of the risk of touching the metal plate.
Thanks for you comments Charlie_PS2, I had looked for mounting points and when I found that pic, it looked like the shortest path for all the wires.
The idea is actually for the M3.1 to touch the plate as a heat sink but I rekon you're spot on, the two together are probably generating too much heat.
I'll look around for some more pics of a M3.1 on a ver4 board.
Too bad about the Sony CDR's I have about a hundred sitting here. lol
